Buddha hall was founded in 1997 by Usha Dobhal with the aim of providing a safe, nurturing and comfortable environment for spiritualists on the journey to heal, learn, grow and cultivate their gifts. Usha Ji wanted to bring together spirituality, philosophy, science and psychology to create a truly holistic and integrated approach to healing. 

Based on the same principle of inclusiveness and universal wellbeing Ushaji opened up many other sister branches of Buddha Hall in India (Rishikesh, Delhi, Nanital, Bangalore) and overseas, with collaboration and support of her students and therapists, who have professionally worked with over the years. She regularly travels around the world to provide workshops, teacher training and to facilitate healing with unwavering compassion and devotion to help those in need.
